> listen dont go near eclipse its to hard
This is interesting... can you tell me *why* it's to (sic) hard?
> Hes trying to LEARN how to program not how to drag and drop!!!!</rant>
Actually, AFAIK drag and drop GUI building is one thing that Eclipse
The approach you're suggesting (i.e. figure out classpath and the
javac Foo.java) will work fine for small projects, but for anything
more than than you're probably going to need some sort of build system.
So now, if time permits, the guy can go and learn about Ant
(not a bad thing to learn about, BTW) or he could simply let an IDE take
care of it for him and focus on learning Java.
Then when he gets time he can write an Ant build.xml (which is IDE
and thus he's not tied to the IDE.
